Antonio Conte: Chelsea boss questions Tottenham's ambitions

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy Levy has been Tottenham chairman since 2001

Conte watched Chelsea's 2012 triumph but after seeing their 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich this week - and despite spending £129million already - he says the gulf in European class is only too evident.

The youngster played the full 90 minutes in five out of the seven matches in the tournament.

"Walker-Peters is a top player", he said.

"Iniesta is certainly the type of player I could look up to and I would like to draw parts of his game out into mine".

Chelsea are £53m down so far this summer, a deficit figure that only Manchester City and Manchester United eclipse.

Chelsea and Tottenham were rivals for the Premier League title last season, and the fires have seemingly been well and truly stoked ahead of the new campaign after Conte's comments clearly got to Pochettino. "They have the possibility to play and to learn, to show their quality", he said, but "we are talking about players that are so young and need time to settle on the first team".

"I think Chris can get the best out of me in that aspect and when we have the ball he gives players freedom to play football, so I'm excited to work under him".

If you go to buy Kane now, it would be at least £100 million.

The nursing home on the building's ground floor did not have many patients as the place was being renovated. The fact that the nursing home on the ground floor was not in operation may have also saved several lives.

"It makes you have that little more determination when you are back out on the field".

'It sounds bad but, with so many world class players around you, you're going to need an injury or something to a player in your position and then your chance will come.

The defender is now involved in the senior squad who travelled to the United States for their pre-season tour and he has started in the last two matches against European giants Paris Saint-Germain and Roma. "If not, we continue this way". We have a great set of players, a great manager and coaching staff.

"Every team has to understand what their ambitions are".

"The academy is important because if we produce our own players we don't have to spend £20m or £30m on a player". If they go out after the first game that they play in the Europa League and go down against Gent, it is not a tragedy.

"I've got Spanish grandparents and I've got a connection with Spain". That's what I've said all along.

The manager concluded, "I think that it's clear, in the last three years, my philosophy has helped me a lot to reach or achieve the thing that [the club wants]".
